Jordan's father, Lee Mein, began operating a local promotion called Rumble in the Cage. It gave Jordan his first fighting opportunity and when he was just 11 years old he fought another local boy in a kickboxing match. That fight helped start Jordan's fighting career that has included kickboxing tournaments, jiu-jitsu competitions, amateur and professional, Mein is known for his aggressive fighting style.
Mixed martial arts career
Jordan's first amateur fight came when he was 14, and he compiled a 6-1 record before turning pro. He turned professional in June 2006 at one of his father's Rumble in the Cage shows.
Jordan defeated Joe Riggs via second round KO at Wreck MMA: Strong and Proud on January 28, 2011.

Mein made a quick return to the Octagon as he faced Matt Brown on April 20, 2013 at UFC on Fox 7, replacing an injured Dan Hardy. He lost the fight via TKO in the second round, after a Brown knee fractured his nasal and orbital bones. Despite the loss, the back-and-forth bout earned him his first Fight of the Night bonus award.
